Health Referral is back 17th May!

Health referral is restarting at Hailsham Leisure Centre

April 30 2021

Health referral available

We are delighted to announce that Health Referral has restarted at Hailsham Leisure Centre. Health referral is aimed at people that have received a referral from their doctor, physiotherapist or self-referral (we may require you to get a GP refferal for some higher risk conditions) and is designed to assist clients in achieving their health goals and to help them become a confident, independent exerciser. Our qualified exercise referral instructors look forward to welcoming back previous clients and meeting new clients to the program.

Regular exercise can help manage and improve many long term health conditions, it is important though, that the exercise programme is appropriate for your condition and of course that it is something you enjoy! Whether you prefer exercising in the pool, gym or in a group class, our instructors will be able to advise what activities will suit your needs.
